On Oct 3rd 2011 media was allowed to visit the Utoya island for the first time since the July 22 terror attacks. ..The 2011 Norway attacks were two sequential terrorist attacks against the government, the civilian population and a summer camp in Norway on 22 July 2011. The first was a car bomb explosion in Oslo within Regjeringskvartalet, the executive government quarter of Norway. The second attack occurred less than two hours later at a summer camp on the island of Utoya in Tyrifjorden, Buskerud. The camp was organized by AUF, the youth division of the ruling Norwegian Labour Party (AP). A gunman dressed in an authentic looking police uniform gained access to the island and subsequently opened fire at the participants, killing 69 attendees, including personal friends of Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg and the stepbrother of Norway's crown princess Mette-Marit..The Norwegian Police Service arrested Anders Behring Breivik, a 32-year-old Norwegian right-wing extremist and terrorist responsible for the mass shootings on Utoya. .(Foto:Fredrik Naumann/Felix Features)
